JRI Shocks Ordered

I just ordered a set of JRI Shocks from Howard at Motorcycle Metal. These are comparable to Ohlins shocks, adjustable dampling and rebound as well as sag/pre-load. I will review them after installation and break-in.

ordered a set of JRI's with remote

Invested a bit of time with Howard originally to discuss replacing my progressive 440's with Ohlins. When I hung up I had ordered the JRI's with the remote hose setup. I went large looking to resolve the crappy suspension issues I have been experiencing for the past 18 months. The 440's did not seem to hold up as well as I hoped and despite no external signs of failure they clearly had given up the ghost.
Have to see what the JRI' do for me.

JRi shocks

I have had mine on for 2 weeks. Fantastic. Went to Lonestar Rally this week, 180 miles round trip. I did not mention to wife I had installed them. She noticed and said they are muuuucch better. Neither of us ever had to lean forward off of back rest. I got the 12" A from Howard. He preset them and I have not adjusted or measured sag. Ride great one and 2 up so far and they are not broken in.

You would think HD would put a decent shock on em ~ I ended up with the 940's off of the 10 LTD and really like em ~ I'm going to the P cartridges up front with a 2" Drop ~ hopin to get rid of the ole man ride ~ I'm sure the Ohlins & JRI's are quality products also. I went the progressives due to convenience and the lifetime warranty ~
